The General Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde
Bakare, has prophesied the return of the missing abducted Chibok
schoolgirls this year.
Speaking during the church’s crossover service into the New Year on
Thursday morning, Bakare told his congregation that Nigeria would enjoy
extraordinary grace from God this year, which would see the return of
the missing girls.
He said, “The Chibok girls will be returned this year; some people
will say ‘they are just using religion to deceive themselves. How will
the girls be rescued?’ You will see. I didn’t say it, it is what God
said and I believe it.”
With the support of various Bible verses, the cleric also foresaw a new Nigeria which would bring joy to the citizens.
Bakare urged Nigerians to stop tribal discrimination, which he described as bad for the country.
The cleric said, “Whether you are from the East or from the West or
from the North or the South, you will experience joy in 2015. Other
nations will say ‘how did they do it.’ It will be indescribable joy. The
nations of the earth will testify. I bring good tidings of joy to every
part of the nation but I am not going to deceive you, we are going to
go through some shakings.
“Let us not desecrate ourselves, saying this one is Ngbati-ngbati or
that one is Aboki and things like that. These are terrible things. Some
people will say ‘if you see a snake on one side and a Fulani man on
another, first kill the Fulani. There is also a terrible joke some
people tell about the Igbos.”
Bakare also criticised the state of environmental degradation in the
Niger Delta area of the country, which he described as unfair. He
narrated an experience he had in the area where he had to rely on the
use of table water for washing and other domestic uses because of
“I asked what I would do with all the table water that was brought
and they said ‘you would need it’. The water from the borehole dug deep
into the ground was black and when I asked how I would get water to wash
and do other things, they said that was why they gave me all the table
water.” he said.
